Charlotte and Coastal Indian to Sponsor #12 Jay Maloney in 2019 AFT Twins
Indian Motorcycle Charlotte and Coastal Indian of Myrtle Beach have announced that they are the presenting sponsors of Oakland, New Jersey native's Jay Maloney 2019 AFT Twins effort.
Indian Charlotte’s owners, Tim Sutherland and Lloyd Greer, have a long background in various forms of racing, and when Jay’s team looked for a key sponsor for the 2019 American Flat Track Series, the sponsorship opportunity made perfect sense for both groups.
Jay’s #12 team raced an Indian FTR750 in 2018 and finished 17th in the standings. Now going into his 3rd season racing the AFT Twins and his second year riding an Indian FTR750, he is poised to put himself on the podium this year. Jay said: “I am energized to have the support of Indian Charlotte and Coastal Indian this season, those guys are truly winners and I find inspiration in their support”.
Tim and Lloyd have high expectations and look to continue their winning ways as they expand their racing DNA into the AFT Twins Series. Tim said: “Jay is an up and coming rising star and we are proud to share our background and resources to help him take his efforts to the next level in the AFT Series.” Lloyd agreed and added: “Our dealership near Charlotte has set the bar very high with our in-house ownership of Indian Motorcycle Horsepower, and we are eager to add our support to Jay’s efforts.
"We know how to make Indian motorcycles perform and bring a lot to the table. We are also keen on using what we learn in our various racing efforts to bring dependable performance to our clients’ Indian motorcycles as well”.
Tim Sutherland and Lloyd Greer bought Indian Motorcycle Charlotte in the spring of 2018. Charlotte is the first Indian dealer of the modern era, having opened in 2008, and is regarded as the flagship and benchmark of dealerships around the world. Indian Charlotte has been chosen as a Top 100 Dealer in international competition every year since its opening and has won numerous other special awards.
